Dear Mr Dee

 

I am writing in reply to your recent request for information made under
the freedom of Information Act 2000. You asked for details of:

 

“Please provide a complete list of addresses including company name where
available and the property description of commercial occupiers whose
rateable values up to £11,000 are NOT in receipt of small business rate
relief. Please also list their liability (actual rates payable) and what
date they are liable from and indicate if the account is live or not,
please include the rateable value Please can you ensure this information
is accurate and up to date”

 

I have considered your request under the Act and can provide a list of
liable parties which are not natural persons where the rateable value is
less than or equal to £11,000 which are not in receipt of small business
rate relief. I can also include the date which their account started. All
accounts are live, there is no historical data.

 

I have not included rateable value, property description or rates payable
as these are available to you by other means. Please see the attached
refusal notice for further details.

 

Yours sincerely

Thank you Lindsay

You could have easily provided this information to me, your conduct is disgraceful and unacceptable and I do not need to contact the monitoring officer to make a complaint against you.

The Chief Exec is ultimately responsible for your behaviour.

Lets hope you treat the next customer with more professionalism.

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Dee
